Arrival and Dismissal
School starts at 9:05 everyday with the exception of Wednesdays. On Wednesdays, school starts at 9:20. Students can be on the playground 15 minutes before the bell rings which is 8:50 am (9:05 on Wed.). You may walk your child to the K-2 playground or at drop off at parent drop off (right after Ranch Drive enterance to parking lot). Please do not bring your child into the classroom prior to school starting. If they are late, they need to enter through the front doors of the building by the office and get a slip from Mrs. Stanford.
School will dismiss at 3:55 everyday. If we have early dismissal that day school is dismissed at 1:25 pm. Parent pick up is the same as parent drop off. There is a procedure when entering the parking lot to pick up your child. The first option is to park in the lot and walk across the crosswalk to pick your child up. Please do not have them come to you in the parking lot. They need to be with an adult to cross into the parking lot. If you do not park, please enter the parking lot from Ranch drive. On your right you will see the parent pick up spaces. You will want to stay on the left and continue around the curve in the parking lot all the way to the fence and get into the parent pick up line. The whole process takes no longer than 15 minutes, but patience is important! I am usually directing traffic in the parking lot and if you have any questions please ask. Just know that when coming to pick up your child after school, you need to go around. There will be staff out in the lot on the first day handing out this information as well.
Children left at school past 4:15 will be taken into the office where we call our emergency numbers on file. If you are running late, please call the office and let Mrs. Stanford know.
